We had our Christmas department lunch at this restaurant. The interior is old and tired. The service was okay, nothing special. The salad was okay, a little heavy on the dressing. I had the Pollo Bolognese - chicken topped with prociutto, provolone and mushrooms. The portion was lunch size and the broccolini was okay. There was something on the plate... More

We made our second visit to Bonarati and were as rewarded as our initial one. A solid, fruity Montepulciano whet our appetite before a delightful agnolotti appetizer in pesto My daughter opened with a gnocchi in cream sauce. To my mind, gnocchi properly made is a serious test of an experienced kitchen and so this was a serious dish. Our... More

This restaurant has been consistently good for upscale food and quiet dinner. We have been here a few times for special occasions. At the end of the meal, when the wait staff sang happy birthday to my father, who made the reservations, they sang a completely different name twice in the birthday song. We thought they had the wrong table.... More

We enjoyed dinner and tasted a number of different entrees and appetizers and desserts. I can honestly say, all were good. We enjoyed a pretty large sampling, being a sharing party of five. I will return.

Excellent food, attentive staff. Specials are good; list is a bit long. Plenty of atmosphere for that special dinner, or business meal.

As former NYers and travelers to Italy, we were not hopeful to repeat those culinary experiences in our new digs in Fairfax But.....lot and behold Bonaroti met the challenge. A friendly, comfortable environment with equally friendly and knowledgable staff. A fettuccine special entree was excellent as well as a veal scaloppine. Having old country experience with gnocchi, I requested a... More

We had first visited Bonaroti for a private company function some months back, and were impressed with the food, service and ambience. The restaurant was a particular favorite of this company's execs, and it seemed well warranted. We therefore went back with the family a few months later, and were very surprised that nohing seemed the same. We chalked it... More

I went to Ristorante Bonaroti for our anniversary dinner last night., and had a great dining experience per usual; we are never disappointed with this restaurant! Like many other reviewers, I found this place through a Groupon or Living Social deal; they are almost always advertising on one of the deal sites. I feel like whenever someone has a strong... More
